    To put it simply I think the format of the these forums is outdated. A LOT.

    I use Reddit a lot and while thats pretty much the gold standard for forums I think LFC should take a leaf out of its book.

    - A system to up vote and down vote comments.
    - The ability to sort comments to the highest rated comments top
    - Replies to comments should be sub-comments below the main comment.
    -Customise notifications so you only receive them when someone replies to your comments or mentions you.

    This would improve this platform massively. Sure we can afford it.

    I can't see it happening as the focus seems to be on the Facebook and Twitter platforms. This forum is like an old car; you keep because it serves a purpose but eventually you give up servicing it and chuck it on the scrap heap.

    Just my perception as a volunteer mod, not an official line or anything like that.

    I see. A shame seeing as the forum appears to get a lot of traffic (I could be wrong) FB and Twitter are great for 1 liners, images and vids. Also good for reaching new comers to the sport and really young kids. Not so much for discussions though. Like I said, a Reddit style approach with say the most popular threads somewhere on the home page, would be great. I see your point though.

    Thanks for replying too much appreciated.
